From the track junction, the cut, marked Potae-Ruahine Corner track follows the defined ridgeline NNE, passing the top of a large, grassy slip. After this it enters flat tops of young bush, descending gently before emerging 600m later at the stark line dividing the bush of the Ruahines from the tussock tops beyond. Ruahine Corner Hut is 300m west along the bush edge along a poled route.
